North Franklin – Fatal Vehicle Collision
A motorist was killed in a vehicle crash in North Franklin late Wednesday evening.
Just before 11:00 p.m., 59-year-old Clarence Montgomery was traveling north on Route 32 when his vehicle suddenly swerved onto the opposite lane, crashing head-on into another vehicle. Authorities received reports of the incident and immediately sent emergency teams to the area. Montgomery sustained critical injuries and was transported to William H. Backus Hospital where he was declared dead, while the other driver was also hospitalized but is currently listed as stable. There is no word yet on the possible cause of the accident. Authorities are investigating the case and will release more info when appropriate.
Many head-on collisions have the same outcome, serious injuries or fatalities, hence the need to promptly identify crash causes/culprits so that future incidents can be avoided. That said, victims of these unfortunate situations, or their families, are advised to seek legal guidance. It’s crucial that they are informed of their options as these can help them cope, financially and emotionally, as well as find closure.
